2017 Ford Escape Details
Similar to the 2016 Ford Fusion, the 2017 Ford Escape is available in three trim levels, the S, SE, and Titanium. While the S trim has front-wheel drive, you can choose to have either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive if you get an SE or Titanium. Your Ford Escape will have a six-speed automatic transmission no matter what trim you decide to purchase or lease.
The S trim has a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 168 hp and 170 lb-ft of torque.
